Canada Day Dessert Idea – Chocolate Covered Pretzels

I am a proud Canadian and look forward to Canada Day every year. The fun family activities, parades and fireworks make for such an exciting day for me and the kids.   We usually enjoy a family BBQ followed by attending some of the free events our city has to offer.  Whenever we are invited over for a BBQ I like to make sure that we take food with is to contribute to the meal.  One fun and easy Canada Day dessert ideas is Canada Day Chocolate Covered Pretzels.

Chocolate Covered Pretzels are super easy to make. The kids can even help. They are fun and festive and you can decorate them to match any theme. If you are taking them with you where you won’t have access to a fridge I would suggest putting them into a container with an ice pack as the chocolate will make a gooey mess in the hot sun. If that happens to you do not worry, it still tastes good!
